    One of my bcm's was standing near me today and decided to relieve herself and basically it was just water that came out...should I be concerned? My girls have plenty of water and they get plenty of laying pellets so, I don't think she'll get dehydrated or starve but...I was wondering if this is normal?

    If it's hot where you are, they are likely drinking a lot more water, and will have more watery poop. Even if not, I wouldn't worry if you see no other sign of a problem and it's an isolated incident.

    I'm not sure if she's done it all day or if it's an isolated incident...I work...so I don't see them all day...she seems fine though other than water for poop! [​IMG]
